The pythons had entered into Mankind. No man knew at what moment he might be possessed! On Christmas, the world's freedom died. Every man, woman and child lay in the grip of fear, for no one knew at what moment his nearest friend or a casual stranger might suddenly be possessed by some brutal mind... and begin to murder and destroy.

For Chandler it was worse than for most. He was both victim and executioner. He had suffered himself, and he had committed a violent crime while under the strange domination. Accused of hoaxing, he was driven from his home. He wandered the world and found it smashed like a spoiled child's plaything. Now Chandler was in the very presence of the destroyers! But what could one person do against such power? The power of gods! Download and start listening now!

    " An enjoyable if slightly unbelievable read on how great power can greatly corrupt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clark | 9/20/2011

    " Great little SF gem. Spooky and definitely not for the squeamish. It would have been all but impossible to adapt for film when it was published in the early 60's but in today's ultra violent video culture it would be quite the cinematic wild ride. Great premise; well realized. Give it a read. "

    " A nasty little cold-war thriller but fascinating. "

    " This book gave me the creeps. It's basically about absolute power corrupting absolutely. A device was invented that lets a person completely take over another person and treat them as puppets. The people who possess this device use it to commit the most horrific crimes. Very disturbing read. "

    " Enjoyed reading even with it's dark nature and somewhat dated cold-war era mindset. A bit too much nastiness (people under mind control doing horrific things and ultimately suicide). The story evolves from demonic possessions to mechanical mind control and ultimately a morality tale. "

    " mind control, perhaps a story of absolute power,
    what would most people do? "
